Production area and harvesting
The dates of the variety “Deglet nour” grow on real date palms on farmland, Demeter from 1997, in the south of Tunisia. Thanks to the warm air and soil moisture the dates obtain their unique flavour.
The dates are fully ripe, depending on climate, from November to mid-December. We now begin the harvest, which lasts until the end of January, so that the fruits are sweeter and with a longer shelf life.
Once collected, the fruit is cleaned and, to eliminate any remaining insect, it is cut down into cells at -35 ° C for 24 hours. The fresh product thus worked remains available in stock for a whole year. In storage it is necessary to ensure that the fruits are kept dry, fresh and protected from light.
Loose or in 250 g trays, they are packed in cardboard crates.
